Media Statement 
Cleaning of Berea Reservoir

Johannesburg Water would like to inform residents of Berea, Hillbrow, and surrounding areas that our teams will be cleaning the Berea Reservoir from 16 -27 November 2020.

The cleaning process will include replacing the Scour valve as well as the ladders. Customers that are getting a feed from the reservoir are advised that this is routine maintenance and  Johannesburg Water is anticipating a minimum impact on supply of services in the area as the reservoir is currently on bypass since  4  November 2020 and there have been no complaints of poor pressure or no water to date.

The Entity has contingency plans in place in terms of water tanks to supply water tanks in case of emergency. Residents are also reminded that the City is still under level 1 water restrictions and we urge all to use water sparingly.

Johannesburg Water will keep customers informed on the process via our social media pages.
